IOWA CITY, IA – University of Iowa men’s basketball fans will get an opportunity to view a behind-the-scenes look at the Iowa basketball program Sunday in the third episode of “The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2010” on the Big Ten Network (HD).

The episode will debut Sunday at 3:30 p.m., with repeats at 7 p.m., 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. (CST). The Journey takes fans behind the scenes of the 2010 Big Ten basketball season.

This week’s episode checks in Illinois center Mike Tisdale and Ohio State standout Evan Turner. The show will also go behind the scenes with Iowa’s young squad, as well as Draymond Green, Michigan State’s emerging leader and newly-appointed co-captain.

The Journey was given an all-access pass to the Hawkeyes for two days leading up to Iowa’s game at sixth-ranked Michigan State Wednesday night. Cameramen and producers followed co-captains Jarryd Cole and Devan Bawinkel to an Iowa student-athlete off campus social, followed freshman point guard Cully Payne and sophomore guard Matt Gatens as they prepared for practice, mic-d up Assistant Coach Joel Cornette during the Michigan State game and much more.

The Hawkeyes remain on the road this weekend when they travel to Bloomington, IN, to face the Indiana Hoosiers. Tip-off is slated for 5:05 p.m. (CST) at Assembly Hall.
